George W. Sweeps the 2008 SPOGG Awards

March 4th is National Grammar Day. The day we donate all our typos to charity.

And it’s the time for the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar to hand out their awards for the worst.

From their site:

This year, the award goes to President George W. Bush, who does not realize the plural of “child” is “children,” not “childrens.”

He beat Paris Hilton, who produced T-shirts that say “THATS HOT” without the apostrophe, and Courtney Love, who generates so many errors per inch of text on her blog that even the best instruments known to grammar scientists have failed to record them all.

Poor Courtney – she just can’t catch a break from anyone…
